Rhinestone and Sequin Butterfly Hair Clip Tutorial

Tonight is the father daughter dance. Kiah was soo very excited, she always LOVES going to these and getting dressed up! She gets to go on a date with daddy, he takes her to dinner before the dance and everything.  I always do her hair and we find a pretty dress, and I "do her makeup". She feels like a princess.. and she looks like one too! 
Well of course I just had to make her a special hair clip to match her dress!
it was inspired by this post, (that I saw on be different act normal) to use the sequin string.
And Im going to share with you the tutorial.

sequin string
rhinestone string
multi tool
Hot glue gun
alligator clip or headband
I traced my shape onto cardstock paper, to use as a template. 
Only because I didnt want to get pen onto the felt.
But you can also draw right on the felt.

Cut out your felt shape.

 Use your glue gun to trace around the edge of your shape, and add the sequins as you go.

pretty much just keep going around and around...
until its all filled in.

I used the multi tool to cut the rhinestone strings to the length I needed.

 Used the hot glue gun again to glue the rhinestones.
Originally I was going to leave it like this, but felt something was missing.

 So I added one more line of rhinestones. 

Now you just add your alligator clip!

Here She is all ready for the dance! :)

My beautiful daughter Kiah. :)

haha they HAD to do the Zoolander Face!

Practicing their amazing dance moves!
